Know Your Car!!

There seems to be a lot of frustration when it comes to the oil on this car. When you are driving a luxury car you need to keep up with certain things that you wouldn't need to in a Honda. I have my oil checked after every 100+ mile trip and topped off and get my oil change every 3,000 miles. It's a great reliable car with amazing handling. The gas mileage could be better but no complaints, again a high maintenance vehicle. You need to take care of it though, and commit to regular maintenance, if you can't then you shouldn't be buying luxury.
Interior is extremely comfortable, outstanding turning radius, lots of room for storage!
What a biased and ridiculous review. Just because you are willing or want to check your oil every hundred miles does not mean that that has anything to do with luxury.
There are plenty of intelligent knowledgeable people here who want there car to take them several thousand miles without having to check fluids. That in itself is luxury.
If Lexus and others can do it then so should GM. Part of buying a good vehicle is it's reliability. One of the reasons Saturn is gone is because they built oil burners. Also if your car is using oil it is doing it at the expense of the engine, cooling system or the catalytic converters, oil does not vanish.
